Celebrate Banner

Hello.  So I had this idea for a reverse banner in my head.  Just had to let it come out and the card below is what I got.  I started with a 4 by 5.25" piece of Papertrey white cardstock.  I die cut the flags from a Sizzix/Hero Arts die across the top of the cardstock.  Punched a 1/16 hole at each end of the banner and threaded some bakers twine through the flags and holes.  Tied knots on the ends.  Stamped the Celebrate from PTI Think Big Favorites in Raspberry Fizz ink and backed the flags with foam tape.  Cut a 3 by 5" piece of background paper (pink stripe) from Stampin Up. Attached it to a A2 white card from PTI and then put on the die cut layer.
I am going to enter this in the CAS-Fridays CFC67 challenge, Simon Says Stamp focus on  Hero Arts challenge  and Papertrey Inks Make-it-Monday challenge #80.

Thanks for stopping by,
Sentimentally Sue.
